Red Carpet Fashion Awards

For her tenth ‘Sola Moda’ program, supermodel Nieves Alvarez sported a variety of looks, although all three had subtle hints of a nod to the 1960s.

Nieves’ first look was a silk bodysuit and lace embroidered pants from Roberto Verino’s Fall 2012 collection.

Maison des Talons silver sandals completed the look which, although flattering on Nieves’ long, lean figure, feels a bit to revealing for a TV show.

The next look was an orange cap sleeve Versace Fall 2012 dress. I love how mod this mini is, and the surprising addition of Lari green sandals works wonders for this look.

The last outfit worn by Nieves on the show was an Andrew Gn Resort 2012 jeweled dress in a deep green offset by Christian Louboutin diamante Pigalle heels.

In my opinion this is the least successful of all three looks — the heels and the dress together make it impossible to notice any details besides the amount of sparkle Nieves is wearing.

After a short hiatus due to the Olympics, Nieves Alvarez was back this weekend to present the ninth program of her program ‘Solo Moda’.

Showing how both patterns and solids can be stunning and dramatic, she certain didn’t take her foot off the gas during the break.

Her first look was a Custo Barcelona Spring 2012 dress.

The long, centered slit, side cutouts and captivating pattern were not at all detracted from by the simple, elegant Christian Louboutin sandals Nieves paired with the look.

Stella McCartney’s take on a bodycon dress, made popular when Kate Winslet wore the same piece to the Venice Film Festival earlier this year, was the second look for the presenter.

Nieves paired the form fitting frock with a pair of Christian Louboutin printed ‘Pigalles,’ which gave the entire ensemble a refined, sophisticated air.

For her final look she donned a tweed Louis Vuitton jumpsuit and jacket, accessorizing with a coral pair of Christian Louboutin heels and Pandora earrings.

I adore this look for its playfulness and the complete wearability of the Louis Vuitton tweed.

Nieves wore jewels by Magerit throughout the entire program.

Which of Nieves’ three looks gets your vote for best of the day?

Jordana Brewster attended the Carmen Steffens West Coast Flagship store opening at the Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California yesterday evening with Nikki Reed also in attendance.

Summery looks are pretty much a rare occurrence on the red carpet, so we’ll accept this Zimmermann floral maxi dress – which is ironically from the Fall 2012 collection.

Jordana’s styling is pretty much spot on, but I just wish the makeup was as light as her dress.

Much like Team GB, Kylie Minogue appeared to have caught gold fever as she was spotted outside her management offices in London yesterday.

The Australian singer soaked up the sunshine wearing a Dolce & Gabbana gold brocade jacket with shiny gold buttons and a gemstone-and-pearl embellished neckline.

Her trophy jacket, which has an air of ‘ladies who lunch’ about it, was dressed up with tailored black pants and gold Jimmy Choo strappy heels.

Cat-eye sunnies and a black clutch completed her street chic look.

For Prada’s Fall/Winter 2012 campaign video, the brand adopted a virtual world where the sharp symmetry of the backdrop matches the geometric patterns on many of the collection’s pieces.

The video features both a chess game and a parallel reality, both of which mirror each other.

The models, including one of fashion’s superstars Magdalena, all sport pin straight here and dramatic, dark makeup. The clothes, which do promote a 1970s vibe, are also visibly alluring in their sharp silhouettes and deep colors and textures.

The Fall/Winter 2012 collection has not yet hit the red carpet. In fact, the only two people seen in Miuccia’s newest masterpiece are the two Anna’s: Anna Dello Russo and Anna Wintour.

Do you think the video does the Fall/Winter collection justice?

Who would you like to see wearing this collection on the red carpet?

Tuesday night Holland Roden attended the NYLON Magazine August Issue Launch Party in Hollywood.

The ‘Teen Wolf’ actress wore an Alice + Olivia lace top and a yellow bubble skirt. I think the ensemble looks very sweet and fresh on the young actress, especially with her red lip and loose hairstyle.

Without a doubt my favorite part of Holland’s outfit are her accessories. The actress accented her Alice + Olivia get-up with Alexandre Birman peep-toe heels and a Dannijo bib necklace.

The necklace in particular keeps the look very current without seeming too trendy.

Do you like Holland’s look? Or do you think she should have gone with something a little more sophisticated?
